Antique French Linen Double-Strap

375.00

This gorgeous antique French linen has been a summer staple for us for a few years now and is always fresh and beautiful. The bags are constructed from an authentic European grain sack that was hand-woven on narrow looms. The striping on each bag represents individual families. The linen has been carefully washed and any small holes have been properly patched. These antique grain sacks are full of history and each one carries a unique story. The durable nature of this fabric guarantees years of enjoyment.

This classic style is a great size and shape for everyday. The double-strap construction makes it super versatile, too. You can carry it on your shoulder or use as a cross body depending on your needs for the day. Both straps clip on and off easily with solid brass trigger snaps and D-rings. The straps are made of hand-cut + finished natural belting leather, which will get softer and darker with wear. The bottom is reinforced with gorgeous natural veg-tanned leather that has been extensively hand-processed to give it a lived-in look and feel that goes beautifully with the vintage fabric. It will patina and get even mushier with use. Two generous front patch pockets keep your essentials close at hand. The inside is fully lined with natural linen and has two pockets for loose treasures. A hidden magnet at top keeps the bag shut so everything is safely inside.
